George Bush sees the light
"I think that in retrospect I could have used a different tone, a different rhetoric," Bush told the Times as he flew across the Atlantic on Air Force One.
The phrases he used to win support for the war such as "bring 'em on" and "dead or alive" he said, "indicated to people that I was, you know, not a man of peace."
But that impression, he insisted, was far from the truth.
"One of the untold stories of Iraq is that we explored the diplomacy a lot," he said. "We all wanted to solve this 'disclose, disarm, or face serious consequences' in a diplomatic fashion. After all, I went to the United Nations security council."
Uh, chimpy? Maybe if you had, you know, listened when you went to the Security Council, that might have meant something. But coming from the man who gives an interview "(w)earing an Air Force One flying jacket embroidered with George W Bush over his left breast, and with a china mug bearing the acronym Potus - President of the United States - at his side," what else would you expect but stunning narcissism.
